How do you change the order of layers in Premiere Pro?

 In Adobe Premiere Pro, you can change the order of layers, also known as tracks, in the timeline to determine how they appear in your video. Here's how you can change the order of layers:

1.      Open Adobe Premiere Pro and either create a new project or open an existing project.

2.      Locate the timeline panel, usually located at the bottom of the screen.

3.      Identify the layers/tracks that you want to rearrange. Layers are displayed as video clips, audio clips, or graphics in the timeline.

4.      Click and drag the layer you want to move to a new position. As you drag the layer, you will see a highlight or outline indicating where the layer will be placed.

5.      Position the layer above or below the desired track and release the mouse button to drop the layer in the new position.

By dragging and rearranging the layers in the timeline, you can change their stacking order. The layer positioned higher in the timeline will be displayed above the layers positioned below it. This determines the visual and audio stacking order in your video.

It's important to note that changing the order of layers in the timeline affects how they appear in the final video. So, ensure you arrange them according to your desired sequence and visual hierarchy. For example, if you want a certain video clip to appear on top of another, make sure it is positioned higher in the timeline.

Remember, you can also adjust the track height to make it easier to view and rearrange the layers. Hover your cursor over the horizontal line between the tracks in the timeline until it turns into a double-headed arrow. Click and drag the line up or down to increase or decrease the track height.

By following these detailed steps, you can easily change the order of layers in Adobe Premiere Pro and have greater control over the visual and audio composition of your video project.
